Brazil's Ambassador of Song
Few songwriters get to see their songs and influence sail across oceans the way Jobim did. This set chronicles the birth of Bossa Nova as you delve into the life, music and legacy of the iconic Brazilian composer. You'll see rare studio encounters and live performances as you watch No More Blues (which focuses on Jobim's musical innovations and the spread of his songs around the globe), Waters of March (which centers on his relationship with ecology) and She's a Carioca (a tribute to his passion for Rio de Janeiro). The finale is the stunning New Year's Eve 1996 tribute concert featuring Chico Buarque, Paulinho da Viola, Milton Nascimento, Gal Costa and Gilberto Gil!
